Article/Poem written by Chocolate City boss, Audu Maikori Let me speak now while I have voice Let me speak as it seems others may have lost voice Let me speak because in truth I have no choice Let me speak because those we chose chose not to speak up for us Clearly it's in God we trust Because no one will help us but us Let us speak up for only we can help us Let's tell our stories For they have changed the narrative They've concocted a Molotov cocktail Tales by moonlight So much creativity that the truth took flight But we will keep the true version in sight Inspite of threats of arrests, jail and criminal Charges It will be criminal if we don't let our truth be told I'd rather die poor, but still dignified and bold Than be "free" and rich yet jailed by the trappings of wealth obtained by stealth Let me speak for my voice is amplified By the passion that burns like gas flares in the cage of my heart By the sufferings of a hapless people Who's last line of defence is their cries , their voice Surely they don't have an option but this choice Let me speak because I have so much things to say right now It will be robbery to keep such treasures in the vault of my mouth I must spew forth the truth Who knows who will be inspired? The next Dora akinyuli? The next Christopher Kolade? Awolowo? Sardauna? Or Zik? Either way we can advance and inspire the next clique Let me speak because my time is here And it will not last forever As such I must be clever What if this opportunity doesn't ever come again- never? Then I would be a clanging cymbal A broken chime An empty vessel of an era far gone, An era for gone Let us speak up Or forever hold our peace Let's speak up now Lest our country , our people our freedom become deceased
Former Lagos state governor and APC national leader, Bola Tinubu and Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose aren't the best of friends. The two South-West politicians however ran into each other at the swearing-in ceremony of the new governor of Ondo state, Mr Rotimi Odunayo Akeredolu. They shook each other's hands and the greeting seemed quite formal.
